Rendering of Museum's Exterior after Transformation


Federal appropriations provide the foundation of the Smithsonian's operating budget and support core functions, such as building operations and maintenance, research, and safeguarding the collections. Private support is essential to achieving our mission to commemorate, educate, and inspire, helping us reach millions of visitors each year through exhibitions and education and public engagement programming. The National Air and Space Museum is grateful to our donors who help further this mission.
